A friend of ours is about to turn 40 years old and thankfully chose to hold her birthday brunch early – the gathering was probably the last social gathering for quite a while. #socialdistancing.
Our friend has been through quite a tough few years and it was lovely to see her welcome her forthcoming decade with grace and style.
Obviously, the current situation meant that we were were all much more restrained in how we greeted each other – some, like the birthday girl, were happy to hug, while others were content to bump elbows.
It was just what was needed prior to the possibility of the country shutting down and the prospect of weeks at home.
